Who knows, maybe I'll come out like Robert Downey Jr. A little wiry-er or sumpin. Either way, the cuttin starts on Thursday, May 12th, according to the messages the scheduler and I passed between our phones. I guess I shouldn't complain. Before cel phones I would have had to rely on a land line call from a real person who can get answers to their questions. To be fair, I missed the call. So yeah, it appears, so far, that my surgery is scheduled.
